Major improvements to airborne urban mapping solution

Leica Geosystems introduced its CityMapper-2, a hybrid oblique imaging and lidar sensor for fast and efficient digitalisation of cities. As part of the company’s RealCity solution, which combines the sensor with the Leica HxMap high-performance processing workflow, the solution is designed to provide faster updates while preserving image quality over a wide range of flying […]

Rapid urban mapping system product range expanded

The ZEB Discovery is Geoslam’s latest rapid urban mapping system, which integrates point cloud data with high resolution imagery. The system uses simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) technology and NCTech’s iStar Pulsar panoramic camera for ultra-high definition image capture. Combining the two data sources into one view offers a new way to visualise reality for a […]

New waveform lidar product range launched

Riegl Laser Systems has launched and showcased an extensive range of waveform lidar products at this year’s InterGEO in Stuttgart, Germany. Its new VQ-780II and VQ-1560II airborne laser scanning systems (with a pulse repetition rate of 2 MHz and 4 MHz respectively) increases productivity for both high-point-density mapping and ultra-wide-area mapping. Furthermore, the VP-1 Helicopter […]

Virtual technology to model electricity grid in 3D

Advanced 3D digital modelling of the UK’s electricity grid will be launched by electricity network operator SP Energy Networks as it plans to introduce Fugro’s virtual technology to reduce the risk of power cuts and prepare for the introduction of the technology across its network. This follows a trial since 2014. The upgrade will use […]
